I'm going to build some stowage under the screen stand using Bauhaus' wooden boxes (400x300x240).

The legs are temporary and I'll replace them with aluminum ones. Also I have to hide the cables.

Behind the sceeen I installed RGB LED strip.

I'm building a stand for my projector. Roof mount wasn't an option because my landlord didn't give me a permission to make holes to the roof. 
This stand is going to be tightened between floor and roof (with adjustable leg) so there is no need for drilling holes.

Next thing to do is to make a mounting plate for the projector.

I needed a bag for my camera and its accessories. Luckily I found an old video camera bag :) Some duct tape and padding and here we are.
At the moment the bag holds a camera body+50mm lens, 100-300mm lens, 18-55mm lens, extension adapter tube and an air pump cleaner. There is also a side pocket in the bag where I keep my extra batteries etc.
